Dance Awake is a facilitated conscious dance practice for deepening into presence through movement and expanded awareness. Each practice is supported by a unique wave of music, simple guidelines and gentle facilitation which safely opens and holds the space.
The dance is hosted by Yanna Romano every Tuesday. Romano is a qualified yoga, dance, and art process facilitator currently training in mindfulness facilitation through IMISA and Stellenbosch University. Yanna is passionate about music and movement, which repeatedly serve to remind her why she is here while revealing the next best step.
No previous dance experience is needed and everybody is welcome.
Each week’s theme is posted in the Facebook event discussion, as well as on their Facebook and Instagram pages – links available below.
Guideline for the dance include being present, staying in movement, dancing with eyes open or closed, no speaking (this is done through dance), respect each other and the space.
No drugs, alcohol, photography, cell phones or the use of recording devices are permitted. People who do not respect fellow dancers or the space are asked to leave.
Those interested are advised to wear comfy clothes and bring water to stay hydrated.
